We are extremely pleased to welcome this gaming industry pioneer to our stage for a conversation with the New York Times’ John Markoff. They’ll talk about everything from his early days at Apple working for Steve Jobs, to founding Electronic Arts thirty years ago to 3DO and Digital Chocolate. He’s also on the board of Extreme Reality, a 3D gesturing company. What are his thoughts about how the gaming industry has evolved, the state of gaming today and how 3D technologies may change the ways we interact with devices. Please join us.
